Local Medical Program Expands Internationally


A simulation program created by physicians at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center and Regional One Health to train health care workers to more efficiently handle obstetrical emergencies is now expanding internationally.

he program was founded about five years ago by Dr. Giancarlo Mari, professor and chair of Obstetrics and Gynecology at UTHSC, as part of a plan to tackle the county’s high infant mortality rate. Since then, it’s been used to train more than 500 obstetricians, nurses and residents from 15 states, including Tennessee.
